This is for Penny,MelissaAnn, and D.l, I just found out about your dad. I am so deeply sorry. My mother Corinne passed the same time. Gloria didnt say anything to me when I told her my mom died so I had no way of knowing. May cousin Lou rest in peace and be with his family and relatives who loved him. God bless him .
